Thank you so much Debbie! I hope you know that you are changing (saving) lives with the work that you do. You certainly have a gift and you’ve found an incredibly impactful way to give it!
My life abruptly changed when I was approached by my family and asked if I would visit a specialist, Debbie Bayer, with them. I had been addicted to opiates for around 7 years, shooting heroin for the last 3. My family let me know that they were aware of my addiction and wanted me to sit down with them and Debbie. I am 11 months sober now, and I fully believe it is because of the style ofintervention that was performed on me.
Thanks Debbie, I owe you my life!!
Debbie, your strength and wisdom was incredibly valuable as well. I think you had a tough job of introducing my family to “boundaries”and “focus on self.”We did want my daughter to go to treatment so we did not have to feel the pain and do the work ourselves. We all learned so much from you. Your recovery is such an asset to what you do. I respect and admire you too. I think your strength was what I most relied upon from you, when I called you, desperate and lost.
Here for you
